Lonely & Blue
Prestige, 1962. Poor
Hard to imagine Etta Jones being lonely and blue – especially when she sounds as great as this! The album's one of Jones' early classics from Prestige – a date that really has her classing things up a lot, and drawing on bits of Billie Holiday and Dinah Washington's styles, to mix in ...

Capitol, 1959. Very Good
A later Capitol gem by June – where she reprisies a number of classics from her early years with Stan Kenton – new versions of late 40s tunes, done here with Pete Rugolo arrangements that go a good way towards showing how both he and June had grown during the 50s. Titles include "H ... LP, Vinyl record album

Someday Man
Reprise, 1970. Very Good+
One of Paul Williams' greatest albums – produced by his friend and frequent collaborator Roger Nichols, with a style that's very much like the best work the pair recorded together!

Swingin Singin!
Philips, 1962. Very Good
Great early stuff by this swingin' French vocal group! These guys swung as hard as American groups, like Lambert, Hendricks, and Ross – but they stuck to hipper, jazzier material, and had a driving sound that never let up! The group is led by singer Mimi Perrin, who also handed the ... LP, Vinyl record album

This Is My Beloved
Verve, 1968. Good+
An incredible album from Arthur Prysock – an amazing set of mature love modes, set to beautiful backings by Mort Garson! The album's easily Prysock at the height of his 60s sophistication – a complete reworking of the This Is My Beloved modes away from more mainstream readings, in ways ... LP, Vinyl record album

Ken plays alto sax, Beverly sings – and the rest of the album features small combo backing that includes Vic Feldman on piano and Joe Pass on guitar. The tunes are an assortment of 60s groovy pop tunes, soundtrack gems, and a few ... LP, Vinyl record album

I Cry By Night
Capitol, Late 50s. Very Good
One of the best jazz-based sides ever cut by singer Kay Starr – a vocalist who's better known for her pop work of the 50s. The album's got a moody late night feel that's a perfect fit for the title – with small combo backing, and some strong tenor work by the great Ben Webster on a ... LP, Vinyl record album

That Travelin Two Beat
Capitol, Early 60s. Sealed
A surprisingly great pair together – with a hell of a lot of charm in their lyrical delivery, and almost a conversational sort of patter! Billy May arranges, too! LP, Vinyl record album
